Robyn: 'Hang With Me'

By
Robyn 'Hang With Me'
Released on Monday, Sep 13 2010

One could justifiably accuse Robyn Miriam Carlsson of many things - being Swedish, releasing one of the best albums of 2010, having a cage-fighter (who isn't Alex Reid) for a boyfriend - but acting conventional isn't one of them. 'Hang With Me', the trailer single for "Pt. 2" of her Body Talk trilogy, in fact made its debut on "Pt.1".

Of course, it's had the pop equivalent of a Gok Wan makeover since then. What began life as a subdued-but-beautiful strings 'n' piano ballad is now a strident electropop tune that percolates as enviably as your next door neighbour's brand new coffee maker. "Just don't fall recklessly, headlessly in love with me," Robyn urges on this ode to friendship, mutual support and generally not being a fool who rushes in. If you've heard 'With Every Heartbeat', 'Be Mine' or 'Dancing On My Own' - and if not, why not? - you'll understand precisely why she's advocating the Once Bitten, Twice Shy approach.
